This latest postcard series done in Budapest uses water soluble chalks and watercolor on the whitened surfaces of found postcards. Through visual markmaking alongside a parallel study of the poems of Attila József, these preliminary pieces respond and reply to the poet’s words, ever pertinent to these troubling times. The drawn texts of the small works use both the original Hungarian as well as English translations by John Bátki, Tamás Baranyi (see here and here) and others.
These Postcards, along with a large body of related works will be exhibited in the fall of 2017 at the Ferencváros Historical Museum in Budapest’s 9th district.
